Lieutenant Mary Margulies had survived because a friend saved her life at the risk of his own. If she'd been lucky, she never would have met him again.

Specialist Niko Daun was young, cheerful, and as skilled a technician as anybody in the Frisian Defense Forces. He'd sooner have died than serve again with native troops on a backwater planet.

Sergeant Johann Vierziger said he had a purpose in life. To those around him, that purpose seemed to be to kill as often and efficiently as humanly possible...assuming that Vierziger was human.

They were professionals of violence, and with an instinct for good craftsmanship. In the end, they'd learned that they could defeat anything but their own consciences....
